McDonald's fresh approach

by Pete Crow - Publisher
It seems that when McDonald’s restaurants speak, everybody listens. McDonald’s is a big target for food activists but a huge customer of agriculture. They do seem a bit sensitive over some of the food issues, like humane treatment, accusations that their food stuffs are over pro- CROW.

This arrangement would have allowed the stock show to grow and be better than ever. And perhaps bring in a host of other livestock events. The new grounds would be easy to use and out of the way of the major traffic lanes on I-25 and I-70. In addition, there are plenty of hotels in the proposed area and it would be a good fit.

It looks like we may have popped the holiday beef bubble this last week. Cattle markets were roaring hot two weeks ago when fed cattle traded as high as $128 live and $208 dressed.
